Computer question for the lazy(7 posts)

Computer question for the lazyBikinCO
Oct 2, 2001 8:21 AM
Ok, I started looking in the reviews for a new cycling computer but got tired of looking and reading. So here are my questions.

1) Are there any wireless computers that also do cadence? If so are they any good?
2) Which models do you recommend (wireless or other)?

The only wireless cadence that I am aware of is the Shimano Flightdeck which calculates a virtual cadence from the gearing and wheel circumferance data supplied by the operator.

I was just on Specialized site today. The yet to released 2002 Speedzone Pro appears to have a wireless cadence function. Of course, you can equip an entire fleet with CatEyes for the same money. But I have to admit, I think the new car speedometer design looks cool and you can get it on the less expensive models too.
I like Shimano FlightdeckChris Zeller

My flightdeck is nice and gives me cadence as the above poster mentioned. All it needs is altitude and heart rate monitor and it would be perfect.

The Polar 710 seems to have everything I need (cycling functions, cadence, heart rate, altitude, stores data for download) but I think that the cadence requires the power kit and needs a wire. Thinking about it for Christmas. Dear Santa....
P.S. Ergobrain is the equivelent if you have Campy (nm)Chris Zeller

Doesn't Ergobrain require a wire for cadence? (nm)Chen2
